OMG! Ok guys I've got this. Who says guys have the bigger set? Whoever said that, never met a real woman! If you're looking for a long walk on a short pier, I might be able to help you out a little. We southern women can hold our own. No offense to northern ladies. This read has it all from a whirlwind of emotions like, packing a category 5 hurricane. If you've never seen or lived throught a cat 5, trust me when I say your lucky. The guy looking that storm in the

I loved coming back to the "Ridden Hard" world, and diving into the relationship of Tristan and Victoria. Such seething anger and resentment just had to erupt into something amazing, didn't it? It sure had to COME from somewhere, that's for sure... and when we learn about those origins, they're heartbreaking. Not soul-shattering, no. Not like that, but relate-able. Human.

Tristan and Victoria are two strong, driven personalities who care too much about appearances and taking care of others,

From the moment we met him in the first book, Ive loved Tristan. This book made me contemplate reconsidering my feelings a couple of times, but overall I still loved him by the time I got to the end. Victoria is much more complex. Shes done things I hate and things I love which means my feeling about her were a lot less clear when I started this book. Even here, reading her story, she does several things that make it very tough for me to like her. But as we get deeper into the meat of this book, ...more

I met Tristan and Victoria in the first Ridden Hard book, Hard Flip, and while I loved Tristan, I wasn't crazy about Victoria for most of that story. She did start to redeem herself toward the end, but I'll admit that I was still on the fence about her. It didn't take long to get me off that fence as I learned more about her in this one. She certainly has her flaws, but don't we all? And whether because of those flaws or in spite of them, I like her with Tristan - they're just so good together, ...more

Finally I get to see the story of Tristan and Victoria who were a side story in Hard Flip. This story was written perfectly to show how the love/hate hate/love relationship between the two progressed to where they both hope it will be a love/love. We get to wonder if things would have worked out between "Vicky Next Door" and Tristan if she had met him first instead of Mischa. I was kept on the edge of my seat wondering if one more thing in the universe could conspire against this couple and ...more

As far as Im concerned, when it comes to hot erotic romance Allison Lindt is the platinum standard. All of her books are scorchingly hot bit also scorchingly well plotted and written. That was certainly the case with
Hard Pack, the initial book in her Ridden Hard series, and Allyson Lindt has done it again with Hard Pack (Ridden Hard Book 2). This was one truly fun novel and definitely recommended. It had just what I wanted, was well written, and had a great plot full of perfectly heated romance.

This is another well written romance from Allyson Lindt that flows effortlessly from the beginning to the end! There is a good blend of humor, angst, conflict, and some very steamy romance. Tristan and Victoria have both grown up with other peoples expectations driving them to succeed. Both have experienced failure and disappointments that have ultimately left them stronger. Unfortunately, theyve never gotten along. Can they set aside their past resentments, and work together to resolve the ...more

Loved Victoria and Tristan's story. I am glad they forgave themselves and each other for everything.

Victoria has wanted Tristan for a long time, but she never expected to get him after the way things went when she was with Mischa. She grabbed her chance and got an unexpected surprise out of the deal. How the heck was she going to tell him about the baby?

Tristan couldn't stop thinking about Victoria after their night together, but big problems have cropped up in the form of an IRS audit

*I was gifted this ARC from the author and freely give my review*

This was not as good as the first book in this series but it was still a good 4 star read.
I think the only thing that made me give it 4 and not 5 stars is that I didnt feel the connection between Victoria and Tristan that makes the story more intense.

This is what I liked:
* Good storyline, partly parallel and continuing from the first book.
* No unnecessary descriptions of surroundings
* A good amount of dialogues
* Some hot love

I'm so happy to read Tristan and Victoria's story. We first met them in the first book and now we get to learn more about them. These two have issues and are definitely not perfect. But that is what makes them perfect for each other. Because they understand each other flaws at least when they are not busy fighting. Victoria ends up with a little surprise and now she is all conflicted, should she tell Tristan? We go on a wild ride as these two sort their issues and learn to forgive and love each ...more

Misconceptions, misunderstandings, and an IRS investigation work to keep them apart...

In Hard pack both Victoria and Tristan have been made to feel less than when they were at an impressionable age. Victoria by her Hollywood studio management, Tristan by his snowboarding coach. But even though they parted despising each other years ago, maybe that wasn't exactly the emotion they really felt. Now they can't keep the other off of their mind. This emotional roller coaster of a read is like a train

This is sexy, entertaining, suspenseful and engrossing. Tristan is condescending, stubborn, unforgiving and jealous. Victoria is dedicated, insecure, confused and lonely. A one night stand with her exes best friend turns into a crapshow that has the IRS breathing down their necks. Complicating matters is the fact that Vicky has been crushing on Tristan for years, but Tristan hates her, and yet sparks fly whenever they are near each other. It's a gripping storyline that has a very, very ...more

This is the second book in the Ridden Hard Series by Allyson Lindt. You'll love Victoria and Tristan's story. He's a championship snow boarder with a coach who makes him feel inferior. Victoria also has baggage from her past. They have a love hate relationship with explosive chemistry and a secret baby. Throw in an IRS audit and other turmoil that will keep you page turning. A really good book that you will enjoy. I read a reader copy and voluntarily chose to write a review.

Wow! Allysons done it again! I loved Tristan and Victorias story! Both of them were struggling with the baggage from their pasts when new drama unfolds. I enjoyed watching their romance unfold and their feelings take over. A great addition to the series full of passion, family, overcoming your past, and love. Cant wait for the next in the series! ...more

Allyson Lindt's "Hard Pack" is the second book in the "Ridden Hard" series, but you could read it as a standalone. Maybe I'm just totally baby crazy right now, but I loved this story. Tristan and Vicky have amazing chemistry. I love how they can't resist each other and are so star-crossed. Lots of hot sexy scenes, as usual. I can't wait to read #3, "Riding The Wave"!

I really enjoyed reading this book. It's well written, entertaining, sometimes hot and steamy and well paced.
The storyline holds You caught up 'til the end, it's not only a sweet romance but also contains some crimes.

The characters are well-developed and You just love them, especially 'Vicky' and Tristan.

So go ahead, grab this book and let the story give You a relaxed reading time.

And book two in this series is just as good of not better. Loved Victoria and Tristan but holy they have a lot to overcome to become more than occasional bed buddies. When strong feelings are surfacing these two have a mountain to climb to get to happiness. Seems like every step forward they take they take 3 backwards. But what an amazing story to follow. I am dying for book 3.
